London City Airport will launch the consultation on proposals to modernise its flight paths by introducing a new navigation system

Archant

London City Airport is to launch a public consultation on plans to modernise flight paths with a new navigation system.

The consultation, which will run from September 4 2014 to November 27 2014, is a statutory requirement according to Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulations and is being conducted to ensure the needs of stakeholders such as the London City Airport Consultative Committee are considered.

It is limited to proposals to improve the navigation systems that define the arrival and departure routes to the airport. A spokeswoman for the airport said the proposals are not about flight movements, infrastructure or aviation policy.

The Area Navigation system, known as RNAV, is designed to supersede ground-based navigational systems that are used today. The proposed changes are part of a wider programme to modernise the air route system over London and the south east.

The Civil Aviation Authority requires that all aircraft should be approved to navigate using the new system by November 2017

More information about the proposal, including diagrams illustrating the proposed flight path modernisation, and information about how to take part in the consultation process, and what outcomes can be expected, is available on the London City Airport Consultative Committee (LCACC) website www.lcacc.org, and on the London City Airport website www.londoncityairport.com/londonairspacemanagement.
